Potters Clay Spotlight Hop Day 3

Welcome back to  Day 3 of Verve's Anni-VERVE-sary Spotlight Hops! Today, our sneaky little spotlight is shining on the Potter's Clay stamp set and coordinating Pottery Die Set. These lovely little products will be releasing this Friday, August 26, but you can hop along today for a chance to win them! I'm the first stop on today's hop, so let's get to it!


For my card, I started with a piece of white cardstock, stamping the Ephesians 2:10 verse on the right side.  Next I stamped the two vases.  I achieved a shaded look by stamping using my MISTI stamping tool first with pool party, then swiping just part of the stamp with pacific point ink and stamping again.  A couple of repeat stampings really builds up the texture and interest.  Both vases are cut with the coordinating Pottery Die Set.

The floral spray was next, stamped in tiptop taupe, then lightly brushed over with a watercolor brush and some watered down walnut stain ink.  I went over it quickly with a glue pen, then dusted with glitter for a sparkly effect. It's hard to catch that golden shimmer in the photograph, but it does add such a nice effect.


To put it all together, I did a quick quick hand cutting around the edges of the spray with scissors, then tucked it into the vase with a slit I made with an X-acto knife. I added just a hint of a white rim around where I tucked it in with a white gel pen to complete the look. Before I glued my pieces down, I masked off the sentiment and splattered watered down walnut stain and tumbled glass reinker for a fun background.  Then I finished things off with some distressed edges and a bit of seam binding ribbon.

Thanks so much for hopping along with us today! You next morsel of Vervey goodness is waiting for you over at Stacey's blog.  Have fun, and if you get lost along the way, the full hop list is below.
